Melanie arrives carrying two very large yellow pom poms and dressed in a bright green tracksuit.
MELANIE: Raiders, Raiders, ra ra ra, we're going to kick the Panthers to another star, we're going to rip ‘em into outer space, if you think you can win then you're off your face. Raiders, Raiders, ra ra ra, we're going to pop until you drop, tear you from limb to limb, watch out Panthers, the Raiders are here to win
